Bake & Take Day March 24th


Bake and Take Day, celebrated on the 4th Saturday of March, is sponsored by the North Dakota Wheat Commission. This year it is celebrated on March 24th and the NDWC encourages people to surprise others with a freshly baked food.

Participants are invited to bake the Cheese Sticks and 100% Whole Wheat Sugar Cookie recipes developed for this year or to bake one of their favorites.

For nearly 40 years grower organizations in wheat producing states have been promoting baking-with-wheat projects. Last year nearly 4,000 Bake and Take recipes were distributed to 4-H clubs, church groups, school groups and individuals throughout North Dakota that wanted to participate.

To obtain free recipe brochures and matching stickers for packages of baked goods, send your request with name, complete mailing address and the quantity of brochures needed to Bake and Take, North Dakota Wheat Commission, 2401 46th Ave SE, Suite 104, Mandan ND 58554-4928.

Additional recipes for baked foods and nutritional information are available on the commission’s web site.
